Product description

Review

The period coloured illustrations add to the charm to make a very inviting book. (School Librarian)

Linguistic romp with an important lesson at its heart. (London Review of Books)

A tale of loss, liberty and language laced with typical Thuberian wit. (London Review of Books)

About the Author

James Thurber (1894-1961) was one of the outstanding American humorists and cartoonists of the twentieth century. Thurber wrote nearly forty books, including collections of essays, short stories, fables, and children's stories.

Marc Simont has illustrated nearly a hundred books. He won a Caldecott Honor in 1950 for illustrating Ruth Krauss's The Happy Day, and in 1957 he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for his pictures in A Tree Is Nice by Janice May Udry.
